Promoting the attractiveness of the technology industry

 

The Federation of Finnish Technology Industries works actively to increase the attractiveness of both technology industry companies and professions in the sector. The goal is to encourage students, teachers, parents and other people already in employment to see a career in the technology industry as a good choice. Students and teachers in primary and secondary education are the main target groups. 
 
The primary objective of the Federation is to increase students’ awareness of the technology industry and improve the image of the sector by using, for example, social media. As a result, the Federation hopes that young people will have a positive attitude towards education for a career within the industry.
 
Secondly, the Federation aims to encourage students to choose a technology related study path and ultimately a profession in the technology industry.
